COVID Will Close a Moline School for Two Weeks

An elementary school in Moline will close for two weeks because of a rising number of COVID cases among students and staff. Friday afternoon the school district announced Roosevelt Elementary will close on Monday (11/9) and not re-open for in-person classes until after the Thanksgiving break, on November 30th. 

All extracurricular activities for Roosevelt students are suspended until November 30th.   

All other schools in the Moline district will continue to offer "blended in-person learning" as usual.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
